Former State Rep. Henriquez Released From Jail

Former state Rep. Carlos Henriquez is a free man after spending three months in jail on an assault and battery conviction.

The Boston Democrat left the House of Correction in Billerica on Wednesday.

Henriquez was convicted on Jan. 15 of assaulting a former girlfriend and sentenced to six months in jail.

He was granted early release by the state Parole Board, but must meet several conditions, including GPS monitoring, staying away from the victim and enrolling in a counseling program for batterers.

Henriquez was expelled from the State House in February — the first member to be removed from the chamber in nearly a century.

He has maintained his innocence and is appealing has conviction.
